The Sankat Mochan temple is the oldest Hanuman temple in Varanasi.

It is said that Saint Tulsidas established two temples in Varanasi and this Hanuman temple is of great value to people who follow the saint's Ramcharita Manas.

The 'Sankat Mochan' (deliverer from troubles) temple belongs to Lord Hanuman (the monkey God), an incarnation of Vishnu. The best time to visit this temple is in the early evening.
